Other equipment experience

For the last few years I've been working mainly as a tractor driver during potato/grain harvest time on big arable farms. I was driving tractors up to 300 HP, mostly New Hollands and John Deere's but also MF, Fendt, Claas, DeutzFahr. Telehandlers like Manitou, JCB, Claas. Forklifts like Toyota, Clark, Still and few others. Ploughing with smaller ploughs so far, but I'm sure I could manage to perform well with bigger ones after some training. I also worked with tractor muck spreaders. I'm familiar with modern machinery, new tractors. I always take care of the eqiupment I'm using.

Other livestock experience

Occasionally helping to move sheep on the farm I worked for the last 5 years. I also fed them, but not everyday. When I worked on mixed farm in Wales I had many daily duties with cows, pigs, sheep and chicken. Also on my parent's farm we had cows and pigs so I have general idea about working with livestock, it's just been a quite long time since I seriously had to deal with them.

Farming background

I had been working at my parents' mixed farm in Poland for years. That's where it began. But in the UK I also worked hard on different types of farm. I started on mixed farm near Royston (Herts), where I worked mainly as a potato or flower grader. Next year I worked on mixed farm in Wales, the farm produces wide range of products to it's farm shop and also sells some fruits/vegetables to markets. The same year later I landed in Kent where I was picking and packing tomatoes in a glasshouse for a big producer, also I was performing there other smaller jobs. The next year (I still was a student and young man) I was back to Kent, but this time I worked with apples, pears and plums. But that's a far past, since 2005 I work on arable farms, mostly as a tractor or forklift driver. I can weld, I manage to carry out repairs of some equipment.
